In Outlook 2016, the method that works for me is to set up a new message, then type the first letter of the email address I want to delete. I arrow down through the resulting list and, when I have focus on the address, I press the delete key.

It doesn’t seem to work in the mail app either, as I’m wanting to get rid of some contacts I never use any more. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi all,

 

With Jaws 2020, I’d like to know whether there is a way to remove one or more items from the address autocompletion list of Microsoft Outlook 365.

 

With older Outlook versions like 2010, and older versions of Jaws, I could select one no more wanted address and type the <delete> key instead of the <tab> key and it was removed from the autocompletion list. But now, this does not seem to work with the Outlook 2016 app which was installed by my subscription to Office 365, and Jaws version 2020.2001.70.

 

Many thanks in advance for any advice. Have a nice day. Chris D

Yes, just arrow to the one that you want to get rid of and hit delete.

Cohn, Jonathan
 

I believe Rahul was asking about how to monitor RSS feeds. Some web browsers will support creating a web page for this, but there are also applications dedicated to reading RSS threads. The tricky part, is that you need to find the app that presents the information in a way that you like. Do you want items categorized by keyword, or publisher? Are you OK with an APP or do you want email. I believe that Google does have a service to scan RSS and other constantly updating services and send you a daily summary. Also of interest, is that a podcast is just an RSS that has attached multimedia files.

Hi,

I am wondering what is the best solution, using Firefox or Google
Chrome, to do this. I use a service called BlogTrottr which sends
daily emails of updates on chosen webpages, but that does not work for
many webpages. I have played around with RSS feeds but have not found
them to be very uuseful, intuitive to use.


Any ideas?

Hi,

This issue occurs because the Windows Custom Text Size (DPI) setting is set to a specific custom value in the Display item in Control Panel.

To work around this issue, change the Windows Custom Text Size (DPI) setting to a non-custom value. To do this, follow the steps below

Open Control Panel.
Click Appearance and Personalization.
Click Display.
Under the Change size of items section, click set a custom scaling level.
Select one of the standard values, such as 100%, 125%, 150% or 200%.
Click OK.
Click Apply.
To apply the change, click Sign out now when you are prompted.

I am using JAWS 2019, Windows 7 and office 2007 and Windows Live Mail.  Each time that I type a date like March 22 in a word document or an email, JAWS will not read anything in that line of text where the date is.  It doesn't say anything at all.  This has been happening for a while, it even happened with JAWS 18.  Has anyone else experienced this?

You need a lot more than just the IP address.

 

1. In order to access anything on a computer, you need a file server of some kind--FTP, http, etc.

 

2. In order to make a file server work, you need two addresses--that of the computer itself, and that of the router to which said computer is connected.

 

2.1. To get the address of the computer on which the server is running, do the following:

2.1.1. Open the Windows Start menu by tapping the Windows Key.

2.1.2. In the search field, type cmd. Hear Windows say "Command prompt ..." etc. Press ENTER.

2.1.3. At the prompt, type "ipconfig" and press ENTER.

2.1.4. Use the JAWS Cursor and move through the screen contents until you find something that sounds similar to this:

 

   IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.140

 

Whatever you find that closely resembles the above, that's your computer's address. Make a note of it.

 

2.1.5 type EXIT and press ENTER to close the Command Prompt window.

2.2. To find the address of the great unwashed Internet on which your router sits, go to http://www.whatismyip.com and look for something on the screen that sounds like this:

 

My Public IPv4 is: blah.blah.blah.blah

 

The numbers you hear, sepearted by periods, are your external wide-area network (WAN) address. Make a note of it.

 

Now for the hard part.

 

3. Using your router's address, which you can find by searching the screen you got in step 1 and looking for the string "Gateway," log into your router' administrative/maintenance account  and set up a forwarded port to the computer who's address you discovered in Step 2.1 above. The port number you will forward depends upon the kind of server you've set up. Secure FTP is port 22; https is port 443. How to accomplish logging into your router and setting up a forwarded port is beyond the scope of this mesage, mostly since all router manufacturers have different ways of doing it.

 

You're all set now. You can set up your internal file server to give you access to anything on your home system.

 

Note that some network-attached storage devices offer this ability in a nice, pre-packaged application which is a lot easier to set up than what I just described, except for the port forwarding part. That one's  a necessary evil unfortunately.
